I steeped the tea in a gaiwan with recently boiled water. After a quick wash and “leaf awakening”, I was first a little overwhelmed with how green the Oolong was. My first cup helped me set my pallete and only after that was I able to truly appreciate what I was tasting (I’m still new to active tasting)!

The liquor itself is a bright hay color and gives off a vegetal, grassy aroma at first. After a moment I was able to detect some citrus notes (the bergamot, it seems). This tea has an astringency I found quite enjoyable and has a refreshing citrusy, lightly sour after taste that lingers pleasantly. The tea itself is very light in general, which adds to the refreshing flavor of the overall tea.

I quite enjoyed this tea and am eager to try it again!

Bio

I’m your standard nerdy girl in a lot of regards, from my taste in music, books, and movies to my penchant for getting completely wound up in various activities and hobbies. One of my hobbies that never seems to fade away is my joy in writing.

I’ve written a personal blog, a tea blog, and an adventure blog, all of which recently have been brought together to a single location – A Chomp at Life. The Fun and FlirTea section is dedicated to introducing tea to and enticing today’s younger, coffee-drinking generation. It’s a fun place to learn about tea and hopefully start meeting more tea-lovers as well!

More than almost anything else, I enjoy sharing the things I love and helping spread that joy. Now I’m doing this with tea, living life everyday, and adventures – and I couldn’t be more excited!
